Configuration Options

The following is an overview of all available configuration options in Tacker. For a sample configuration file, refer to Sample Configuration File.

DEFAULT

backdoor_port
Type

string

Default

<None>

Enable eventlet backdoor. Acceptable values are 0, <port>, and <start>:<end>, where 0 results in listening on a random tcp port number; <port> results in listening on the specified port number (and not enabling backdoor if that port is in use); and <start>:<end> results in listening on the smallest unused port number within the specified range of port numbers. The chosen port is displayed in the service’s log file.

backdoor_socket
Type

string

Default

<None>

Enable eventlet backdoor, using the provided path as a unix socket that can receive connections. This option is mutually exclusive with ‘backdoor_port’ in that only one should be provided. If both are provided then the existence of this option overrides the usage of that option. Inside the path {pid} will be replaced with the PID of the current process.

Information to match when looking for cinder in the service catalog.

When the cinder_endpoint_template is not set and any of cinder_store_auth_address, cinder_store_user_name, cinder_store_project_name, cinder_store_password is not set, cinder store uses this information to lookup cinder endpoint from the service catalog in the current context. cinder_os_region_name, if set, is taken into consideration to fetch the appropriate endpoint.

The service catalog can be listed by the openstack catalog list command.

Possible values:
  • A string of of the following form: <service_type>:<service_name>:<interface> At least service_type and interface should be specified. service_name can be omitted.

Related options:
  • cinder_os_region_name

  • cinder_store_project_name

  • cinder_store_password

cinder_endpoint_template
Type

string

Default

<None>

Override service catalog lookup with template for cinder endpoint.

When this option is set, this value is used to generate cinder endpoint, instead of looking up from the service catalog. This value is ignored if cinder_store_auth_address, cinder_store_user_name, cinder_store_project_name, and cinder_store_password are specified.

If this configuration option is set, cinder_catalog_info will be ignored.

Possible values:
  • URL template string for cinder endpoint, where %(tenant)s is replaced with the current tenant (project) name. For example: http://cinder.openstack.example.org/v2/%(tenant)s

cinder_state_transition_timeout
Type

integer

Default

300

Minimum Value

0

Time period, in seconds, to wait for a cinder volume transition to complete.

When the cinder volume is created, deleted, or attached to the glance node to read/write the volume data, the volume’s state is changed. For example, the newly created volume status changes from creating to available after the creation process is completed. This specifies the maximum time to wait for the status change. If a timeout occurs while waiting, or the status is changed to an unexpected value (e.g. error`), the image creation fails.

Possible values:
  • A positive integer

Related options:
  • None

cinder_api_insecure
Type

boolean

Default

false

cinder_store_auth_address
Type

string

Default

<None>

The address where the cinder authentication service is listening.

When all of cinder_store_auth_address, cinder_store_user_name, cinder_store_project_name, and cinder_store_password options are specified, the specified values are always used for the authentication. This is useful to hide the image volumes from users by storing them in a project/tenant specific to the image service. It also enables users to share the image volume among other projects under the control of glance’s ACL.

If either of these options are not set, the cinder endpoint is looked up from the service catalog, and current context’s user and project are used.

Possible values:
  • A valid authentication service address, for example: http://openstack.example.org/identity/v2.0

Related options:
  • cinder_store_user_name

  • cinder_store_password

  • cinder_store_project_name

rootwrap_config
Type

string

Default

/etc/glance/rootwrap.conf

Path to the rootwrap configuration file to use for running commands as root.

The cinder store requires root privileges to operate the image volumes (for connecting to iSCSI/FC volumes and reading/writing the volume data, etc.). The configuration file should allow the required commands by cinder store and os-brick library.

Possible values:
  • Path to the rootwrap config file

Related options:
  • None

cinder_volume_type
Type

string

Default

<None>

Volume type that will be used for volume creation in cinder.

Some cinder backends can have several volume types to optimize storage usage. Adding this option allows an operator to choose a specific volume type in cinder that can be optimized for images.

If this is not set, then the default volume type specified in the cinder configuration will be used for volume creation.

Possible values:
  • A valid volume type from cinder

Related options:
  • None

filesystem_store_datadir
Type

string

Default

/var/lib/glance/images

Directory to which the filesystem backend store writes images.

Upon start up, Glance creates the directory if it doesn’t already exist and verifies write access to the user under which glance-api runs. If the write access isn’t available, a BadStoreConfiguration exception is raised and the filesystem store may not be available for adding new images.

NOTE: This directory is used only when filesystem store is used as a storage backend. Either filesystem_store_datadir or filesystem_store_datadirs option must be specified in glance-api.conf. If both options are specified, a BadStoreConfiguration will be raised and the filesystem store may not be available for adding new images.

Possible values:
  • A valid path to a directory

Related options:
  • filesystem_store_datadirs

  • filesystem_store_file_perm

filesystem_store_datadirs
Type

multi-valued

Default

''

List of directories and their priorities to which the filesystem backend store writes images.

The filesystem store can be configured to store images in multiple directories as opposed to using a single directory specified by the filesystem_store_datadir configuration option. When using multiple directories, each directory can be given an optional priority to specify the preference order in which they should be used. Priority is an integer that is concatenated to the directory path with a colon where a higher value indicates higher priority. When two directories have the same priority, the directory with most free space is used. When no priority is specified, it defaults to zero.

More information on configuring filesystem store with multiple store directories can be found at https://docs.openstack.org/glance/latest/configuration/configuring.html

NOTE: This directory is used only when filesystem store is used as a storage backend. Either filesystem_store_datadir or filesystem_store_datadirs option must be specified in glance-api.conf. If both options are specified, a BadStoreConfiguration will be raised and the filesystem store may not be available for adding new images.

Possible values:
  • List of strings of the following form:
    • <a valid directory path>:<optional integer priority>

Possible values:
  • A valid path to the store metadata file

Related options:
  • None

filesystem_store_file_perm
Type

integer

Default

0

File access permissions for the image files.

Set the intended file access permissions for image data. This provides a way to enable other services, e.g. Nova, to consume images directly from the filesystem store. The users running the services that are intended to be given access to could be made a member of the group that owns the files created. Assigning a value less then or equal to zero for this configuration option signifies that no changes be made to the default permissions. This value will be decoded as an octal digit.

When Ceph’s RBD object storage system is used as the storage backend for storing Glance images, the images are chunked into objects of the size set using this option. These chunked objects are then stored across the distributed block data store to use for Glance.

Possible Values:
  • Any positive integer value

Related options:
  • None

rbd_store_pool
Type

string

Default

images

RADOS pool in which images are stored.

When RBD is used as the storage backend for storing Glance images, the images are stored by means of logical grouping of the objects (chunks of images) into a pool. Each pool is defined with the number of placement groups it can contain. The default pool that is used is ‘images’.

More information on the RBD storage backend can be found here: http://ceph.com/planet/how-data-is-stored-in-ceph-cluster/

This option has a sample default set, which means that its actual default value may vary from the one documented above.

The region of Swift endpoint to use by Glance.

Provide a string value representing a Swift region where Glance can connect to for image storage. By default, there is no region set.

When Glance uses Swift as the storage backend to store images for a specific tenant that has multiple endpoints, setting of a Swift region with swift_store_region allows Glance to connect to Swift in the specified region as opposed to a single region connectivity.

This option can be configured for both single-tenant and multi-tenant storage.

NOTE: Setting the region with swift_store_region is tenant-specific and is necessary only if the tenant has multiple endpoints across different regions.

Possible values:
  • A string value representing a valid Swift region.

Related Options:

swift_store_service_type
Type

string

Default

object-store

Type of Swift service to use.

Provide a string value representing the service type to use for storing images while using Swift backend storage. The default service type is set to object-store.

NOTE: If swift_store_auth_version is set to 2, the value for this configuration option needs to be object-store. If using a higher version of Keystone or a different auth scheme, this option may be modified.

Possible values:
  • A string representing a valid service type for Swift storage.

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_container
Type

string

Default

glance

Name of single container to store images/name prefix for multiple containers

When a single container is being used to store images, this configuration option indicates the container within the Glance account to be used for storing all images. When multiple containers are used to store images, this will be the name prefix for all containers. Usage of single/multiple containers can be controlled using the configuration option swift_store_multiple_containers_seed.

When using multiple containers, the containers will be named after the value set for this configuration option with the first N chars of the image UUID as the suffix delimited by an underscore (where N is specified by swift_store_multiple_containers_seed).

Example: if the seed is set to 3 and swift_store_container = glance, then an image with UUID fdae39a1-bac5-4238-aba4-69bcc726e848 would be placed in the container glance_fda. All dashes in the UUID are included when creating the container name but do not count toward the character limit, so when N=10 the container name would be glance_fdae39a1-ba.

Possible values:
  • If using single container, this configuration option can be any string that is a valid swift container name in Glance’s Swift account

  • If using multiple containers, this configuration option can be any string as long as it satisfies the container naming rules enforced by Swift. The value of swift_store_multiple_containers_seed should be taken into account as well.

Related options:
  • swift_store_multiple_containers_seed

  • swift_store_create_container_on_put

swift_store_large_object_size
Type

integer

Default

5120

Minimum Value

1

The size threshold, in MB, after which Glance will start segmenting image data.

Swift has an upper limit on the size of a single uploaded object. By default, this is 5GB. To upload objects bigger than this limit, objects are segmented into multiple smaller objects that are tied together with a manifest file. For more detail, refer to https://docs.openstack.org/swift/latest/overview_large_objects.html

This configuration option specifies the size threshold over which the Swift driver will start segmenting image data into multiple smaller files. Currently, the Swift driver only supports creating Dynamic Large Objects.

NOTE: This should be set by taking into account the large object limit enforced by the Swift cluster in consideration.

Possible values:
  • A positive integer that is less than or equal to the large object limit enforced by the Swift cluster in consideration.

Related options:
  • swift_store_large_object_chunk_size

swift_store_large_object_chunk_size
Type

integer

Default

200

Minimum Value

1

The maximum size, in MB, of the segments when image data is segmented.

When image data is segmented to upload images that are larger than the limit enforced by the Swift cluster, image data is broken into segments that are no bigger than the size specified by this configuration option. Refer to swift_store_large_object_size for more detail.

For example: if swift_store_large_object_size is 5GB and swift_store_large_object_chunk_size is 1GB, an image of size 6.2GB will be segmented into 7 segments where the first six segments will be 1GB in size and the seventh segment will be 0.2GB.

Possible values:
  • A positive integer that is less than or equal to the large object limit enforced by Swift cluster in consideration.

Related options:
  • swift_store_large_object_size

swift_store_create_container_on_put
Type

boolean

Default

false

At the time of uploading an image, if the corresponding container doesn’t exist, it will be created provided this configuration option is set to True. By default, it won’t be created. This behavior is applicable for both single and multiple containers mode.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • None

swift_store_multi_tenant
Type

boolean

Default

false

Store images in tenant’s Swift account.

This enables multi-tenant storage mode which causes Glance images to be stored in tenant specific Swift accounts. If this is disabled, Glance stores all images in its own account. More details multi-tenant store can be found at https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/GlanceSwiftTenantSpecificStorage

NOTE: If using multi-tenant swift store, please make sure that you do not set a swift configuration file with the ‘swift_store_config_file’ option.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • swift_store_config_file

swift_store_multiple_containers_seed
Type

integer

Default

0

Minimum Value

0

Maximum Value

32

Seed indicating the number of containers to use for storing images.

When using a single-tenant store, images can be stored in one or more than one containers. When set to 0, all images will be stored in one single container. When set to an integer value between 1 and 32, multiple containers will be used to store images. This configuration option will determine how many containers are created. The total number of containers that will be used is equal to 16^N, so if this config option is set to 2, then 16^2=256 containers will be used to store images.

Please refer to swift_store_container for more detail on the naming convention. More detail about using multiple containers can be found at https://specs.openstack.org/openstack/glance-specs/specs/kilo/swift-store-multiple-containers.html

NOTE: This is used only when swift_store_multi_tenant is disabled.

Possible values:
  • A non-negative integer less than or equal to 32

swift_store_admin_tenants
Type

list

Default

''

List of tenants that will be granted admin access.

This is a list of tenants that will be granted read/write access on all Swift containers created by Glance in multi-tenant mode. The default value is an empty list.

Possible values:
  • A comma separated list of strings representing UUIDs of Keystone projects/tenants

Related options:
  • None

swift_store_ssl_compression
Type

boolean

Default

true

SSL layer compression for HTTPS Swift requests.

Provide a boolean value to determine whether or not to compress HTTPS Swift requests for images at the SSL layer. By default, compression is enabled.

When using Swift as the backend store for Glance image storage, SSL layer compression of HTTPS Swift requests can be set using this option. If set to False, SSL layer compression of HTTPS Swift requests is disabled. Disabling this option may improve performance for images which are already in a compressed format, for example, qcow2.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_retry_get_count
Type

integer

Default

0

Minimum Value

0

Provide an integer value representing the number of times an image download must be retried before erroring out. The default value is zero (no retry on a failed image download). When set to a positive integer value, swift_store_retry_get_count ensures that the download is attempted this many more times upon a download failure before sending an error message.

Possible values:
  • Zero

  • Positive integer value

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_expire_soon_interval
Type

integer

Default

60

Minimum Value

0

Time in seconds defining the size of the window in which a new token may be requested before the current token is due to expire.

Typically, the Swift storage driver fetches a new token upon the expiration of the current token to ensure continued access to Swift. However, some Swift transactions (like uploading image segments) may not recover well if the token expires on the fly.

Hence, by fetching a new token before the current token expiration, we make sure that the token does not expire or is close to expiry before a transaction is attempted. By default, the Swift storage driver requests for a new token 60 seconds or less before the current token expiration.

Possible values:
  • Zero

  • Positive integer value

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_use_trusts
Type

boolean

Default

true

Use trusts for multi-tenant Swift store.

This option instructs the Swift store to create a trust for each add/get request when the multi-tenant store is in use. Using trusts allows the Swift store to avoid problems that can be caused by an authentication token expiring during the upload or download of data.

By default, swift_store_use_trusts is set to True``(use of trusts is enabled). If set to ``False, a user token is used for the Swift connection instead, eliminating the overhead of trust creation.

NOTE: This option is considered only when swift_store_multi_tenant is set to True

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • swift_store_multi_tenant

swift_buffer_on_upload
Type

boolean

Default

false

Buffer image segments before upload to Swift.

Provide a boolean value to indicate whether or not Glance should buffer image data to disk while uploading to swift. This enables Glance to resume uploads on error.

NOTES: When enabling this option, one should take great care as this increases disk usage on the API node. Be aware that depending upon how the file system is configured, the disk space used for buffering may decrease the actual disk space available for the glance image cache. Disk utilization will cap according to the following equation: (swift_store_large_object_chunk_size * workers * 1000)

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • swift_upload_buffer_dir

default_swift_reference

Valid Values

None, MAC, ENCRYPT

(Optional) If defined, indicate whether token data should be authenticated or authenticated and encrypted. If MAC, token data is authenticated (with HMAC) in the cache.

permissive

Used to control the use and type of token binding. Can be set to: “disabled” to not check token binding. “permissive” (default) to validate binding information if the bind type is of a form known to the server and ignore it if not. “strict” like “permissive” but if the bind type is unknown the token will be rejected. “required” any form of token binding is needed to be allowed. Finally the name of a binding method that must be present in tokens.

service_token_roles
Type

list

Default

service

A choice of roles that must be present in a service token. Service tokens are allowed to request that an expired token can be used and so this check should tightly control that only actual services should be sending this token. Roles here are applied as an ANY check so any role in this list must be present. For backwards compatibility reasons this currently only affects the allow_expired check.

service_token_roles_required
